Sunnyvale, CA — November 23, 2015 — Mirantis, the pure-play OpenStack company, today announced FusionStorm as the latest Certified Rack Partner to offer Mirantis Unlocked Appliances. These turnkey, rack-based appliances ship with Mirantis OpenStack pre-configured to run in production environments and are easy to install, deploy and operate at scale.
FusionStorm customers will be able to buy the Mirantis Unlocked Appliance for Cloud Native Applications, a pre-validated turnkey environment designed for developing and deploying cloud native applications and container-based environments at scale, and pre-integrated, delivered and supported by FusionStorm.
“Enterprises around the world are evaluating OpenStack, but for some, the barrier to entry is too high. They need a turnkey solution that will be up and running in days, and reliable support for Day 2 operations,” said Mirantis Sr. Director of Solutions Marketing, Jim Sangster. “Mirantis’ select ecosystem of Certified Rack Partners will expand OpenStack’s global footprint. We certified FusionStorm as our second rack partner because of their proven track record in delivering and supporting data center solutions to customers around the world.”
